Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is a distinctive, unique institution, rooted in the Liverpool City Region and with a global presence. Our students and staff, past, present, and future, are the beating heart of our city and can be found in every corner of every industry and community. We couldn’t exist anywhere else and have shaped the city in which we belong. Working with the people of Liverpool to improve lives and support communities is at the heart of why we were founded and why we exist today.

The School of Humanities and Social Science is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the project ‘Disabled Researchers Network’, funded by LJMU and Research England, and based in the Department of History. This project will focus on how to build a positive research environment for disabled researchers, both postgraduate and academic staff, throughout  LJMU.

At LJMU we are passionate about taking positive actions towards greater equality while challenging unfairness. We aim to provide a safe environment for all to flourish. Above all else, we want everyone who studies here, works here and works with us, to feel respected, and to respect others, always.

We are seeking to appoint a postdoctoral research fellow to survey how LJMU presently supports disabled researchers and to identify best practice.

You would be expected to collaborate on publications resulting from the project and to present findings and proposals to LJMU’s Executive Leadership Team, research communities, Disabled Researchers Network, and external conferences. 

In return, we offer an excellent benefits package including generous annual leave entitlement, pension scheme, induction and development support as well as family-friendly policies.

This is an exciting time to join LJMU in our bicentenary year and with the launch of our new strategic plan. 

If you feel that this is the role you have been looking for and your skills and experience can make a real difference at LJMU, we look forward to hearing from you.
